Landmark Catholic-Muslim Forum To Discuss "Shared Foundations"

Islamic Scholars Arrive in Rome for Landmark Muslim-Catholic Talks

The Muslim scholars, who will meet Pope Benedict XVI and Vatican officials for a series of talks starting Tuesday, hope the Nov. 4-6 meeting will help defuse ongoing tensions between Islam and Christianity.

"It is clear that the time has come to open debate on the common theological underpinnings and the shared foundations of the two religions," wrote Professor Tariq Ramadan, president of the European Muslim Network (EMN), in a commentary appearing in the U.K.-based Guardian.

Led by Mustafa Ceric, the Grand Mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the 24 Muslim scholars attending the Nov. 4-6 gathering will represent the Common Word Group, a broad coalition of Muslim leaders and scholars who are pursuing dialogue between the world's two largest religions.
At the talks, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Vatican's top interfaith body, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, will lead the Catholic delegation comprised of 24 Vatican officials and Catholic experts on Islam, including Miguel Angel Aysuso Guixot, president of Italy's top Islamic studies institute, the Pontifical Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies (PISAI).
re: "It is clear that the time has come"

That time that they are talking about...is the time for the creation of a working model of global interfaith cooperation. "It is clear that the time has come" to make it happen, says Professor Tariq Ramadan, president of the European Muslim Network (EMN). The statement reveals just how far the globalization agenda has advanced. It is now at the point where the religions must join together because the one world government will not be possible otherwise. The Muslims and the Catholics, led by the Pope, are laying the foundation.
This is a huge step in the globalization agenda.
This coming one world religion will worship the "universal god". Do not be deceived. The story is here: Building One World Religion, Catholic-Muslim Forum November '08 (10-17-08)

Take note, this is a very important part of the biblical prophecy equation being fulfilled.
